What film have you seen more times than any other? When was  the last time that you saw it? Who were you with?

Steel Magnolias – I watched it with my big girl the first time. I have seen it about 40 times!!!!!

Revolving around Truvy’s Beauty Parlor in a small parish in modern-day Louisiana, STEEL MAGNOLIAS is the story of a close-knit circle of friends whose lives come together there. As the picture opens, we find Drum Eatenton shooting birds in the trees of his back yard in preparation for his daughter’s wedding reception that afternoon. Shortly thereafter, M’Lynn and Shelby (Drum’s wife and daughter) depart for Truvy’s to get their hair done for the wedding. “Just the sweetest thing,” Annelle Depuy Desoto (who may or may not be married because her marriage may not be legal) is introduced to Truvy’s customers as her new “glamour technician.” While in the chairs, the sour-tempered Ouiser Boudreaux shows up and entertains the assemblage with her barbs. It seems that the only one of the group who truly understands Ouiser is Clairee who is recently widowed and looking for a diversion. As she says, later in the picture, “If you can’t find anything good to say about anybody, come sit by me.” Filled with humor and heartbreak, these “Steel Magnolias” make us laugh and cry as the realities of their lives in tiny Chiquapin Parish unfolds.

  • I’d have to say the movie I’ve watched ore than any other would be DIRTY DANCING!! I can’t tell you how many times, though! I first saw it, age 11, at the Blacktown Village Twin Cinema in Sydney with my mum. I even got the day off school for it!! I’d recently broken my arm, so mum was feeling sorry for me and compensating with money and treats and like any self respecting 11 year old, I was milking it for all I could!

    I fell in love with the dancing, the music, the story… and oh, that final dance! “Nobody puts Baby in a corner” – don’t we all just love the concept of an unlikely love story?

  • Very nice post, I surely love this site, keep it up.
